Around Aspects of Minimalist Design
Minimalist Design is not the absence of design, it is rather well thought out design. The main principles of minimalist are; simplicity, refinement, elegance and balance. When designing a Minimalist Website, the line between refinement and boring is very thin, minimalist doesn’t mean forgetting the important things, it means knowing how to pick WHAT is important and how to display it, minimally.
To be successful at using minimalist principles there are some aspects of composition that should be considered. For example, conscious use of symmetry, direction, empty space and a very good choice of typography will make a minimalist design look elegant instead of empty and boring.
If there are colors involved in the design, then those are usually monochromatic or analogous, not overly bright or invading. The use of color is minimal but that does not mean that there is no contrast. Actually contrast is an important aspect of minimalistic composition, it’s just the “right amount” of contrast to heighten interest but no overwhelm.
History of Minimalism
Minimalism started at the beginning of the 20th Century with the De Stijl Art Movement, minimalist architecture and the appreciation of zen aspects of Japanese Culture. From these inspirational roots, minimalism then moved on to interior and industrial design, music and ultimately web design. The general idea and motto behind minimalism is what architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe had to say about it.
“Less is More”
Later on, industrial designer Dieter Rams said of minimalism;
“Less, but Better”
Those three word quotes sum up what Minimalism is and I hope the irony doesn’t go unnoticed.
Minimalist design in Presentation
You can find many minimalist style presentations. The minimalist design aspects itself are friendly to audience’s eyes, so they can understand the presentation without too much interruption. The less color combination, neat layout, will really please the audience.
Also using minimalist design can somehow make your design look professional and sleek, so it will help you engage your audiences more.
